Also whoever manages Commencal's edits and athlete signings needs a raise.

Video: Yoann Barelli Signs with Guerrilla Gravity for 2021 & Sends It On The Gnarvana
Professional riders already have multiple bikes. They are already purchasing (consuming) multiple components. With regards to the average rider, you are right, many people only have one bike. But say you've got the gnarvana (160 mm enduro machine), and it's more bike than you need, it is much easier and requires less consumption and waste to get the seat stay kit for the smash (145 mm trail bike). Chances are you can reuse most of your components and really the only thing you're getting rid off is the seat stay kit, which I believe you can return to GG. Additionally, in having all the same front triangle, there is significantly less waste in fabrication. Just because you sold your last bike doesn't mean every bike will always be sold. At a certain point, they hit the end of their life cycle, and they can be scrapped for parts and material. You can also sell the bike to a material scrapper and they'll pay you for it. Then GG can get the recycled carbon for cheaper than new carbon, keeping the cost to the buyer down. Finally, they're locally made. I suppose if you were to buy one in New Zealand, the carbon footprint of getting the bike there will be significant. But it's much more environmentally friendly to ship from Denver to B.C. than Taiwan to B.C. The reality of the situation is that very few companies, if any, that produce consumer goods will be of no detriment to the environment. However building up, and in Yoann's case partnering with, companies like GG that are taking demonstrable steps to reduce their carbon footprint is better than the "business as usual" attitude that many people have.

@ryan189: Hell yeah! Have a gin and juice in celebration. It's a super fun bike - poppy and playful, but super stable through the chunk.

Although I'm building mine up, I've ridden a few and my roommate has even switched out the seat stay on his. Neither of us have had any issues with the rebound curves, but "holy shit this thing rips" isn't exactly scientific method.

My roommate just picked up a smash and I'm currently building up a shred dogg. I was super stoked to get a local bike company that takes their environmental impact seriously. Huge for GG that YB signed and can't wait to see the content they put out together.

@humoroususername: "She's attractive so I'm allowed to objectify her!" Disregarding everything else, that's a pretty stupid take.

Video: Dirt Jumping a Dentist Bike with Christian Peper
I remember watching a dude absolutely shredding Ruby Hill Bike Park in Denver last summer and thinking to myself "who is this guy he rips." These clips don't even do Christian justice, he goes so big and looks so smooth in real life
